The Ascent (1977) - Voskhozhdeniye
Yet another famous Soviet Movie, The Ascent (Voskhozhdeniye ) is listed in the 20 Must See Films list of Russian Life magazine (20 Must See Russian Films of course :) )
Two soviet partisans separate from their group to go yo the nearest village and find some food but they are captured by the Germans, you can feel the cold and freezing snow ..one more time remember how wild and cruel is the war, especially the WWII.
BUT I must say that the movie is only average,it can be considered slow on today's basis.More info on this black and white movie is here.
